Are you one of the few who has come to this conclusion while there's still time? ❤️ I remember sitting 3ft across the desk in my boss's office, listening to him talk about something very important (I'm sure). I remember having an out of body experience, and observing myself listening to him.
I wondered what his career track must have been to lead him here. In this room. With me.
I thought about his commute. It was LONG. At that age (and salary) he could afford to have a large house on 10 acres, 25 miles away from the city.
I thought about his schedule. He was always in before me, and sometimes left later.
I knew he worked on weekends because, well, we all did.
I thought about his job, and how stressful it must be to have so many people coming to him every 5 minutes.
And I thought about his family. How little he must see them, and what his children must feel toward him.
And I thought about his next move. He probably wouldn't go for the CEO's job, so if he ever wanted a change, he would have to start over at a different company.
And I started to feel bad for him.
Of course, I have enough self-awareness to understand that this wasn't about him at all. It was about me.
I didn't want to be him in 10 years.
I would consider getting to where he was as a complete failure on my part.
And one thing I know about me: I don't like to fail.
So after a lot of stuff that I'm not covering in this post, I finally cut loose.
Now I show people like my old self how to get out as soon as possible.
We don't all have to wait 15 years (like I did) to make the move.
It's time for some self-awareness and new dream creation.
So you don't want your boss's job.
What DO you want?
